Abstract [en]

Mining has always played an important role in human development. The growing demand for miningnowadays puts under threat biodiversity and ecosystem services, which leads to many conflicts based on choicebetween environment protection and social and economical development. Studying a case of a limestone quarryon Northern Gotland as one of the most representative cases of such conflict, gave an opportunity to investigateand analyze the cost of the decision-making in mining as well as interaction between stakeholders affecting andbeing affected by the decision from the perspective of the group opposing to mining. The research showedweakness of communication between the stakeholders; the weakness of the argument supporting social andeconomical development and giving it higher priority than the environment; and the best possible solution whichwould be turning the whole area of interest into a national park, even though such solution would not fulfilltheinterests of the mining company.
